  1. Hi Nee,

    Marion and I were looking for something quick and light for dinner tonight. Since I had some leftover roasted asparagus in the fridge, I decided to make a quick and simple asparagus quiche. It was really good but for some reason, I wonder what it could be, I kinda wish I would have made your Frittata or a least added some Gouda to my quiche.

    Thanks for sharing, Nee...

    Hope all is well with you and yours:)
